An excerpt from "Round Pen First Steps [Downloadable PDF version]":


Throughout the process, do not quit rubbing "because" he moves whatever you do. That sensitizes the horse, while we're working to desensitize our horse. If your horse just can't seem to get over his fear of a particular object, either move (a step back on the intensity scale) to something less scary or ask yourself if maybe you aren't repeatedly pulling it away as he moves (sensitizing him), rather than pulling it away when he's still (desensitizing him). Keep replaying the following admonition from John Lyons in your head as you work with your horse: "The horse must be calmer at the end of the exercise than at the beginning."

As you progressively desensitize your horse to the touch of the whip on first his back, then tail and individual back legs, be on the lookout for particular angles or "pressure points" that seem to consistently elicit a negative reaction from your horse. When you find one, eliminate it as described above. See it as a challenge, as if you're hunting Easter eggs: You know there are spots that he doesn't want to be touched - ferret them out. Be careful to stay well back from the kicking zone, using your dressage whip to keep your distance and do your testing. Gradually increase the pressure: Begin to add quick movements before touching the horse. Build to spinning around, yelling "Ta-Da!" and then rubbing the whip under his tail, that sort of thing. Get creative. If you can't find an angle, a movement or combination that elicits a negative response even if I paid you a million dollars, then you're ready to move on. Trust me, you WANT to find issues - you WANT to fix your horse now rather than later. Beyond kicking, desensitizing your horse in such a manner goes a long way to keep him from bucking, bolting or otherwise "losing it" later. (rpt)
